NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - August 04, 2014) - The HD PENTAX-DA645 28-45mm F4.5 ED AW SR is the first ultra-wide-angle zoom lens in the 645-system lens lineup that can be used on both 645Z and 645D cameras. This is ideal for landscape photography, where delicate angle-of-view adjustments can be difficult due to the restricted footing, and for architectural photography requiring a wide angle of view despite the close distance to the subject. Read all about the Pentax HD PENTAX-DA645 28-45mm f/4.5 ED AW SR lens here: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1072808-REG/pentax_hd_pentax_da645_28_45mm_f_4_5.html
High-performance Super-wide Zoom
Covers super-wide angle of 22-35.5mm equivalent to 35mm format
Internal Shake-reduction Mechanism
PENTAX provides shake reduction feature for medium-format cameras. Compensates for camera shake up to approximately 3.5 shutter steps
Dustproof, Weather-resistant Construction
By mounting the HD Pentax-DA645D lens onto a PENTAX 645D and 645Z, the user is assured of greater durability and reliability when shooting in the rain or mist, as well as at locations subject to spray or splashes.
HD Coating and Aero Bright Coating
Delivering sharp, clear images, free of flare and ghosting, even under demanding lighting conditions such as backlight.
High Effectiveness of Lens Hood
The newly developed lens hood is designed based on the size of 645Z and 645D image circle. This maximizes the effectiveness of the lens hood even with wide angle lens. The Pentax HD PENTAX-DA645 28-45mm F4.5 ED AW SR lens's front frame extends to its maximum length at the 28mm setting, and retracts to its shortest length at the 45mm setting. This makes Lens hood work quite effectively over the entire zoom range.
High Compatibility with Multiple Filters
You can attach the filter at the lens front. This allows the user to select from the many kinds of filters available in the market. The size is 82mm. Since the first lens element of ultra-wide-angle lenses is usually highly convex, most ultra-wide-angle lenses can't accept a filter.
In-lens DC Motor
Smooth, quiet AF operation using a lens-installed AF driving motor. DC motor provided sufficient drive torque and driving speed with minimal noise
Circular Aperture Blades
Round-shaped diaphragm produces a natural, beautiful bokeh (blur) effect, while minimizing the streaking effect of point light sources.
Quick Focus System
The lens features the Quick-Shift Focus System, which allows the user to instantly switch to manual-focus operation after the subject is captured in focus by the camera's AF system.
SP (Super Protect) coating to keep the front surface free of dust and stains.

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability. In his session at DevOps Su...

These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningf...

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ab...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound...

In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...
